The main objective of the PERCEVALE project, engaged by Télécom SudParis with the contributions of both the "Conseil Général de l'Essonne" and the "Conseil Régional Ile de France" , is to deploy a set of experimentation and research platforms contributing to the INT research programs as well as the expertise and technology transfer to the enterprises. PERCEVALE is the acronym of Platform of Experimentation and Research in Communication at Evry VAL d'Essonne.

PERCEVALE is made of several platforms of research and experimentation, connected to a main network infrastructure using different access technologies. Each of the platform focuses on the research and experimentation of a specific service and/or technology. The gained expertise is then quickly transferred to the industrial world.
